Engine/automatic transmission assembly - reconnection and refitting

1 Reverse the procedure described in paragraphs 1 to 25 of Section 8, noting the following points.

2 Check that the engine adapter plate is correctly positioned on its locating dowels. If necessary, a cable-tie can be used to temporarily secure the adapter plate in position on the cylinder block, using one of the engine-to-transmission bolt holes.

3 As the torque converter is only loosely engaged in the transmission, care must be taken to prevent the torque converter from falling out forwards. When the torque converter hub is fully engaged with the fluid pump drivegear in the transmission, distance УAФ in illustration 2.24 of Chapter 7B must be as specified. Incorrect installation of the torque converter will result in damage to the transmission.

4 If shims were fitted between the sump and the transmission, refit them in their original locations when mating the engine to the transmission. If the engine has been overhauled, where applicable fit the relevant shims as calculated during engine reassembly.

5 As the engine and transmission are mated together, guide the torque converter studs through the holes in the driveplate. When the engine is positioned flush with the engine adapter plate and the transmission housing, check that the torque converter is free to move axially a small amount before refitting and tightening the engine-to-transmission bolts.

6 Do not tighten the torque converter-todriveplate nuts until the lower engine-totransmission bolts have been fitted and tightened.

7 Ensure that the roadwheels and the steering wheel are in the straight-ahead position before reconnecting the lower steering column to the intermediate shaft.

8 Reconnect the selector rod and check for correct adjustment.

9 Fill the engine with the correct grade and quantity of oil.

10 Check the throttle cable adjustment.

11 Fill the cooling system.

12 Check and if necessary top-up the transmission fluid level.

13 Tighten all fixings to the specified torque, where applicable.
